Nobody should ever pass up the opportunity to open a new bottle of wine or test out a new recipe. So when Uproot Wines, a company started by Food52 investor Jay Levy, asked us to develop recipes to pair with their Sauvignon Blanc, we happily obliged. Of course we turned to you, our skilled and always-enthusiastic community of home cooks, to pour yourselves a glass of wine and start experimenting.
After the participating Food52ers received their wine and the recipes arrived in our inbox, it was time for us to start testing and photographing. We took this as an opportunity to cook and shoot for the first time in our new office kitchen, which was both a learning experience and a lot of fun. After two full days, we had cranked through 14 recipes, broken in our new kitchen, and relished in the opportunity to crack open a few bottles of our own for "work".
These recipes were originally meant to be enjoyed in the spring, but we've been cooking many of them all summer long -- and you should, too. Now order yourself a few bottles of Uproot Sauvignon Blanc, get yourself to the green market, and plan a nice dinner; regardless of whether you're hosting a crowd or cooking for one, you should always have a good bottle of wine in arm's reach of the stove.
